On Monday, September 17th, the New Haven High School softball team played on their home field against South Callaway. The varsity game started at 5 P.M., with a final score of 16-6, South Callaway.
The players were asked how they felt about the game, and what some of their memorable moments were.
“I thought we had a few good plays on defense,” said senior Olivia Williams. “We hit the ball a little better, but we just hit the ball right to them.”
Senior Kamryn Poe said, “I think we did okay defensively, but I know our offense can be better. We have a lot of people on our team with good sticks (good at bats).”
“Johnna throwing the ball down to second base, and getting the girl out,” was one of senior Julia Unnerstall’s favorite moments.
That night, the Bank of Franklin County hosted the annual softball tailgate. At Lions Field, they handed out free hotdogs and t-shirts. The t-shirt design that was chosen this year was made by senior and player Kamryn Poe.
“I was ecstatic! The tailgate shirts are always a big hit with parents and other students, so I was happy that my design was chosen,” said Kamryn Poe.
The senior players were asked how they felt about this being their last tailgate game.
Kamryn Poe replied, “It's sad, because usually our tailgate is toward the end of the season, but I know it won't be the last tailgate I will attend.”
“I’m not super upset about that being my last tailgate game, because I know that I will still be able to play more home games this season,” said Julia Unnerstall.
Congratulations to Kamryn Poe for her t-shirt design being picked for the tailgate. And good luck with the rest of your season, Shamrocks!
